Where sports and science meets
medicine and movement
Get the edge up on recovery and injury prevention, with innovative
technology and 1:1 treatment plans designed for your body and activity.
We believe full recovery is possible when
you treat the person, not the problem.
We treat the root cause of your
problem, not just the site of pain.
Together, we design a plan that's
aligned to your body and activities.
You get a long-term partner to advance
your fitness and performance goals.
We aren't just physical therapists.
We're also athletes and movement specialists.
We believe movement is medicine. From goat yoga to Ironman competitions, it’s a critical part of how we shake off stress, build community, and connect with a bigger vision for ourselves.
So, you don’t have to be a professional athlete to feel like there’s a lot at stake when you’ve been sidelined by injury, trauma, or surgery.
The problem is, most active people struggle to pinpoint the root cause of their problem. Too often, this causes them to give up activities they love, or assume they’ll just never get back to pre-injury activity levels.
We’re on a mission to change that.
MOTUS’ 4P Joint by Joint Approach™ to healing identifies the source of your pain, then rebuilds strength and restores mobility with an innovative combination of cutting-edge technology, functional therapy, and neuromuscular training.
Our job is to help you unlock the maximum potential from your body, so you can perform at your highest capacity on the field, in your job, or with your friends–without worrying about re-injury.
You don't have to be a Pro to feel like there's a lot at stake
when you've been sidelined by injury, trauma, or surgery.
Our team is here to make sure you feel 110%, so you can really give 110%–without
wondering if you’re pushing too hard, or worrying you’ll end up with an injury.

As an active person and professional basketball player my physical health is EXTREMELY important to me. After tearing my ACL in January and having surgery in February, I am already back jogging and living my active lifestyle with no complications what-so-ever. The staff at MOTUS are incredible, well educated, and know exactly what it takes to get their patients back to 100%. I would, without hesitation, recommend MOTUS Physical Therapy to anyone suffering from pain or recovering from injury!
The MOTUS physical therapy staff have been such a blessing during my father’s recovery from his stroke. They provide great one on one sessions that are catered towards the individual’s concerns. They give us great tips on what to do at home, tools that will help during recovery and exercises that can be done. Thank you for all of your help!

The MOTUS staff was kind enough to meet with our young daughter immediately after knee surgery. The staff has provided “professional athletic ” care tailored for a pediatric patient. They have genuinely taken an interest in her recovery and push her consistently. MOTUS has all of the latest technology and equipment that most physical therapy facilities don’t have. Blessed to have found such a wonderful facility and staff.
I came to Motus a couple weeks after surgery for a torn Achilles. When you first embark on your journey with MOTUS it’s easy to get distracted with the high profile clientele they have but you quickly find yourself immersed in the way they treat you as a patient (I’m just a normal “joe”). It’s evident that the Physical Therapists here take their craft very seriously. They are extremely knowledgeable and you can tell these guys are on top of their game, the latest technologies and understand what it takes to get healthy. It feels like they always genuinely care about your well being, your progress and whatever goals you have in mind.

I would highly recommend MOTUS to anyone or any athlete in need of physical therapy. In my experience they rehabbed me back after a hip impingement surgery and working with the MOTUS staff everyday has been fantastic. They take unbelievable care of their patients through their in depth knowledge of rehabilitation.
